Gary Barlow told Meghan Markle a secret she didn’t know about Prince Harry – and she thought it was a joke

Imagine if you were happily married to the love of your life, expecting your first child together and then got told something you didn’t know about them by a pop superstar.

That’s what happened to the Duchess of Sussex when she attended the Royal Variety Performance on Monday night with her husband Prince Harry , the Duke of Sussex.

It was Meghan’s first time at the annual show and she had the pleasure of greeting performers, as the royals do every year.

Take That were on the bill and Meghan and Harry were filmed chatting to Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald as they arrived at the London Palladium for the star-studded event.

Harry was seen chatting to the boys about how long they’ve been in the business – marvelling at the fact the band was formed 30 years ago.

Gary Barlow then turned towards Meghan and said: "He’s been on one of our records".

Meghan smiled and touched her hair nervously before throwing her head back and laughing as though she didn’t know whether the former X Factor judge was joking or not.

Noticing she didn’t believe him, Gary added: "We’re serious" – and her husband Prince Harry chipped in, saying: "In Jamaica, wasn’t it?"

Meghan’s eyes widen as Gary Barlow replies: "That’s right. He really is on there."

The Duchess then said: "Oh my goodness, you learn something new every day."

It is not known whether Prince Harry sang on a Take That track.

But he did play the tambourine on ‘Sing’, a song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow and performed by artists from across the Commonwealth to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Barlow visited Treetops in Kenya, where the Queen was staying when she discovered her father had died, in order to write the song.

The song was handed over to the Queen at the beginning of May 2012, with Barlow and Lloyd Webber giving her a framed copy of the sheet music and performing the song to her.

Money raised from the sales of the book has helped the community renovate the kitchen in their centre.
